Looking back, I remember waiting for about a year for a snow so I could take this picture. The trap is probably about the same age as Santa, and I had to have help to get it set. I couldn't do it.
Santa could have probably gotten a toe broken. And while the snow appears fluffy, the air was cold. Very cold.
This just proves that Santa is an extremely good sport and enjoys a bit of a jest. I did get presents that year and no coal. If Santa had broken a toe, I would have had a medical bill in my stocking.
